Poll: Trump Pulls ThisClose In One Point Race!
Joe Biden’s lost ground since the close of the Democratic National Convention, and he and President Trump are now running neck-and-neck in the latest Rasmussen Reports’ weekly White House Watch survey.
The new national telephone and online survey finds Biden with 46% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Trump’s 45%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, while four percent (4%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) So, this is now a one point race! Please remember that Rasumussen was one of the only polls to correctly call the 2016 election. Also, this is a poll of LIKELY voters rather than registered voters -- a much more accurate read.
A week ago, Biden led by four points – 48% to 44%. The former vice president has bested Trump in every weekly survey to date, but this week’s 46% is his lowest level of support in any survey. The president has never earned more than 45% of the vote. It remains to be seen if he gets any kind of bounce from the ongoing Republican National Convention.The new survey finds Biden with 76% of the Democratic vote. Trump has the support of 77% of Republicans. The candidates are tied among voters not affiliated with either major political party.
